We would like to filter the Page, the level or the cycle selection in order to take specific values and not reproducing the cycles for all the field values.
The possibility to manage filters and cycle is one of the most relevant features in NPrinting.
You need to send to each user a customized report containing only the filtered content he is supposed to see.
The best way to do this is to use user filters. You can create a different user for each of your recipients. You will specify a unique user-name and e-mail address for each user.You can also add specific filters to the users.
Suppose you want to send a report with values for Europe to recipient E and values for America to recipient A. You can create a filter for Europe and one for America and add the first to user E and the second to user A. These filters will be applied to the user by NPrinting during the report generation. So user A will get a report showing only the Americans values and user E will see only Europe.
Recipient filters can work in combination with Cycles, Pages and Levels. You can add a Cycle (Page/Level) on the country field in the report.
In this case, NPrinting will generate a different file (sheet/level) for each country. Tthe recipient filters are applied first, so user A will see only reports for the American Countries and User E will get only the reports generated for european countries.
Notice that each user is asked to enter its specific credentials when connecting to NewStand, so also the report published there are customized, User A and E will be able to see only the values they are supposed to see.
